Advice on '55 Overlander--craigslist listing

Hey folks. I've been emailing back and forth with a guy selling a 1955 Overlander for $4000. He says dry weight is 3300 lbs. His price is $4k FIRM. He says no title (that it's not required in his state of South Carolina) but to tow it elsewhere it would be up to me to obtain a title.

Question #1: Is this a realistic firm price for a "decent" interior, good shape exterior, title-less Airstream? Looks like it's been somewhat gutted based on the pics he has listed. I haven't requested more pictures.

Question #2: How does one go about obtaining a title for a trailer if no other title exists? (North Carolina peeps, feel free to advise).

This is about in my range budget-wise. It appears he posted this same listing in early Jan for $5900. Now it's listed for $4000 but in a new listing. (based on the pics)

Thoughts on this? Thanks! Here's the link: http://greenville.craigslist.org/cto/3607993186.html

Based on these pics there are no appliances either. Just sent him an email asking about floor rot, electrical and wiring functionality, exterior holes/rust, etc.
He says it's in towable condition. Waiting for word about the aforementioned.

I have been looking at this one for well over a year. That said, he has had it out there for a long time. I don't like the paperwork deal and was hesitant about the frame. Also the mod to the skin at the corner. I am looking for a 56 Overlander and was tempted on this one.
